Fast bowler with stick for support — a temporary solution (5,3)


I believe the answer is:

quick fix

Here is my best explanation:

'a temporary solution' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'fast bowler with stick for' is the wordplay.
'fast bowler' becomes 'quick' (cricket term).
'with' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'stick for' becomes 'fix' (I can't justify this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).

'support' is the link.
I am not very happy about this link. It may be part of another bit of the clue.
